Monk was a former first round selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. He was selected 11th overall by the Charlotte Hornets, playing a bit for their G League team, the Greensboro Swarm before being promoted to the NBA. After Charlotte, Monk joined the Lakers for the 2021-2022 season.
During his only season in Los Angeles, Monk set many career marks. His points per game (13.8), rebounds per game (3.4), assists per game (2.9) and steals and blocks per game were all career highs. He also played more minutes and had a better field goal percentage than he had ever had during stop in L.A. Monk turned that into a two-year deal with the Sacramento Kings.
